The buzz: This adult playground not only serves drinks but also stocks plenty of games and activities—hence the name, referencing the last year of teenage life.  
 
The decor: It all takes place in an atmosphere that’s very “startup rec room” (think whitewashed bricks and street art) despite the unlikely location in Baan Silom, towards the Charoenkrung end of the road.  Board games, pool tables, a table tennis table and an air hockey table complete the picture.
 
The food: The kitchen is a collaboration with chef Thanawat “Ice” Chudtalay of Puu Tid Peek (The Crab Can Fly), a seafood delivery service. Aside from seafood-heavy creations like the squid ink fettuccine with crab roe, garlic and chili olive oil (B250), you’ll find solid sharing fare like nachos (B250) and beef ribs (B1,190). The six-hour-roasted steak (B450), melts in your mouth and comes with creamy, buttery mash and green peas.
 
The drinks: Aside from craft beers like Vedett Extra Ordinary IPA (B320/pint) and Little Creatures (B320/pint) on tap, the bar also spotlights strong cocktails. Water Fall (B420) is particularly potent, made with Kahlua, apple and lychee liqueurs, and Sambuca. It’s served in shot form and comes with another covered glass filled with the aroma of burnt Sambuca that you’re supposed to suck out through a straw afterwards. Less crazy but no less powerful is After 19 (B350), which mixes tequila, triple sec, lime wedge, mint and brown sugar, topped with beer. Our favorite, though, is  My Light (B380), a mix of absinthe, Bacardi rum, Midori, sour mix, lemon wedge, mint leaves and a sweeet kick that softens the blow of the absinthe.
 
The crowd: After-work urbanites in their professional outfits, some younger gangs and the odd foreigner dressed in shorts and flip flops.
 
Why you should care: This is a rare daytime hangout that puts the focus on fun. Choltanutkun Tun-atiruj

Back in 2015 we were told La Fete was changing from a month-long festival to a yearly schedule of art events, but now the Alliance Francaise of Bangkok has announced a very La Fete-like packed schedule of shows, concerts and cultural activities set to run through mid-July. Here’s a closer look at what’s coming up in the next few weeks.
